What Should We Do?

Due to an unusual release schedule here at Ask this week, we are faced with an interesting dilemma.  We have an amazing new feature in the pipe that searchers everywhere will benefit from, and it'll be ready to go out tomorrow.  But if we release it on a Saturday, no one will hear about it. 

Do we wait until Monday, so we can get more buzz?  Or do we release it on Saturday, so people can start using it and benefiting right away?  Please use the comments form below to cast your vote.

Please wait.

Librarians need it today. I've seen the future.

Why wait?

Posted by: SearchStud | Mar 31, 2006 10:05:24 AM

Do it Monday. Who can't wait one day? It will only hurt you if you release it a day earlier, so wait.

Send me an email and let me know about it now, but wait to release it on Monday for the buzz. :P LOL

I thought the internet was going to be shut down tomorrow.

How amazing is it - if it's better than Pigeon Rank then release it tomorrow...

Monday. You need the buzz, so give it that shot in the arm that I'm sure it deserves.

Dude do it Saturday. Everything good happens on a Saturday.

New buzz starts every day and their growth depends by the interest not by the day. Sometimes seems that news related to internet needs a couple of days before burst. My 2 cents ;-)

Release it tomorrow but do not mention it. Put out the press on Monday.

Posted by: Michael | Mar 31, 2006 11:14:15 AM

i thought this was common knowledge by now, always let the public know what they're going to get, then delay it as long as possible to create more buzz and thus, demand. jeepers, tell everyone its coming out monday, and then on monday, push it to next month. people will be waiting with bated breath in front of their monitors for weeks! okay, maybe not, but you get my point.

Release it on Saturday but announce it on Monday. That way, you get the best of both worlds. If someone "stumlbes" on it and likes it, that rocks.

Posted by: Kevin | Mar 31, 2006 11:29:47 AM

Release, release, release I say!
The users of the world want that feature today.

Don't be fickle
When stuck in a pickle

The only way
Is to release right away!
